JioGigaFiber: Here is all about the 'biggest telecom game-changer'

The registration process for Jio Giga Fiber and JioPhone 2 will start from August 15, 2018.

Jio is supplementing its broadband offering with a suite of smart home products.

Reliance Jio, which launched its telecom services back in September 2016 took the entire industry by surprise with its aggressive tariff plans and free services for almost six months.

At the AGM 2017, Reliance Jio announced the 4G VoLTE enabled feature phone called JioPhone. It allows existing feature phone users to exchange their current phone for the JioPhone for ₹501 ($7). The device offers support for 24 Indian languages and voice commands.

"India is ranked quite low at 134th in the global ranking for fixed broadband". Eyeing the market share captured by Amazon with its gadgets, Ambani rolled out the GigaFiber FTTH broadband service that will soon be launched in 1100 cities across the country.


Ambani will also announce the price plans for its optic fiber business. Jio has been testing its internet service in a few cities in India for a few months now, but the company seems to be ready finally to launch it officially now.

Present Jio phone users will get free voice calls and WhatsApp, Facebook and YouTube would now be available on Jio phones, the chairman said. It also traces his pivot toward building an integrated digital offering around carrier Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd. with purchases in the entertainment and artificial intelligence-based education space.

After launching JioPhone past year, Reliance has announced JioPhone 2 at an introductory price of Rs 2,999. As mentioned, there are about 25 million Jio Phone users in India, and access to these social apps will be revolutionary for bringing about a digital change in the remotest villages of the country. The effort will involve the group's Reliance Retail Ltd and Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd businesses, he said.

"Starting this Independence Day, August 15th, you can start registering your interest for JioGigaFiber through both MyJio and Jio.com". It now offers fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband connections with 1.1TB (terabytes) of free data at a speed of 100 mbps.

Smart home solutions such as real-time surveillance and security solutions for homes and enterprises will ride on the fiber network, which will potentially connect 50 million homes, Ambani told shareholders at the AGM. The company said it expects tens of millions of customers and retailers to be a part of this platform through Jio apps as well as Reliance's own retail ecosystem.
